Jeffery Deaver, author of The October List

Two days ago, Gabriela's life was normal. Then, out of the blue, she gets word that her six-year-old daughter has been taken. She's given an ultimatum: pay half a million dollars and find a mysterious document known as the "October List" within 30 hours, or she'll never see her child again. THE OCTOBER LIST is a mind-bending novel with twists and turns that unfold from its dramatic climax back to its surprising beginning.
